Monochrome

Less Noir

I can’t remember last time I had so much fun during a photo shot session. Sometimes I get overwhelmed as things seem to develop at a very fast pace and I don’t want to miss a thing. There is the product, the person, the environment, the feeling etc etc…

This time however the pictures came by themselves, sometimes the clothes wear the person and the person personality disappears, it is good if this is the intention, however I believe that it’s always better to try to make the person shine, with Ana this was easy, so easy, no matter what we threw at her, she just laughed and laughed and enjoyed the session so much, her energy was overwhelming and I do hope this came through my lens ok.

I am not a fan of super sharp images where a model looks perfect and pristine, here there is a Noir feel, movement and action, fun and everything it should be imperfect, human and because of it creative and fun.

I hope you enjoy them and makes you fell part of the Making Of… so much so I left the final images for the Client and kept for me The Making of ;)

'If I draw five for the day
Then we ain't got to worry, we're nice for the day
Inspired by the sun, take flight for the day
Sippin' a cold beer, sunshine in your face'

SEA FEVER

I must go down to the seas again,

 or the call of the running tideIs a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied; 

And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,

And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

The Brutal Barbican and Hard Grain Concrete


Fed up with sharp and perfect pictures. When I visited the Barbican this weekend to see Basquiat paintings you can't help but look into the brutal architecture surrounding the place. Hate or love, both. Brutal is good when its simple. Here is very crowded and lacks minimalism.

But I zoomed into the column and water and got rid of the sharpness and the grain filter I never use was I think good in this instance and it gives the shot how rough cement is.
